Description:

“Established in 1927 by the American College of Physicians (ACP), the Annals of Internal Medicine is the leading journal for studies in internal medicine…

Over the years, both ACP and Annals have grown. The College is the largest specialty organization in the country, continuing to work to enhance health care by fostering professionalism as prescribed in its mission statement. And the journal has expanded in circulation, improved in impact factor score, and adopted useful new features. A few of these features are peer review of articles (1960), the use of the structured abstract (1987), and the twice-monthly distribution of the journal (1988). As ACP and Annals continue to grow, the central values of the art and science of medicine will continue to steer policy and practice.
